The OSL (Orienteering Schools League) – Jo’burg North League has been in existence since 2001 and it is currently coordinated by Tania Wimberley.
The events are structured on a classic orienteering format where controls must be visited in a pre-set order. The winner is the person that completes the course in the fastest time. Electronic timing cards are used. Each event is planned by a Johannesburg orienteering club.
